Those of us who love EE have invested a great deal in preparing our accounts to be the best. Many have spent their hard earned cash but this is only a small portion of the total. Much greater is the time, and energy that we all have poured into studying, memorizing, and understanding the game and all of its intricacies. The biggest investment is in building ones reputation with those they want to fight beside. The better the team one would like to join, the longer the time spent proving the ability to be effective and creating a sufficient level of trust. Therefore, when I see the number of nm results begin to jump considerably, I can't help but take notice. What follows are two examples that I believe the kaw community, as a whole, would benefit from an increased level of understanding. On 7/4, I participated in war 24. It was a long shot, we knew, but the only shot was to cast, and hope for the best. Much to our surprise we were matched. Of much greater surprise was the ridiculous 356,800,633 CS discrepancy between the two rosters. That we were the bigger of the two does little to keep the EE community thriving. Barring multiple inactives, or a complete lack of competence, overcoming that kind of deficit is about as likely as me stepping up to home plate and hitting a homerun in the next televised MLB game. Today, I rostered for war 6. Seeing that several other clans were also interested, and actively looking in WC, or gathering warriors to clans from rosters they prepared previously, I was pretty sure a match would happen. However, that was not to be. Instead, another nm result. So, I began to look again. What I found was beyond disappointing. Casted, and waiting was another clan that was only 36,364,323 CS bigger than ours. They also recorded a nm. I can't help but think about the last S5 proposal, and the number of people who are touting it's superiority over the first. While I see no redeeming qualities in the 1st proposal, I must say that the second is no better. It's very important to understand that a great majority of those who just can't get enough of the indi war proposal have done little to none of the proving ones self I spoke about at the beginning. They wish to shortcut the process, to take the easy way out, and why not? The indi proposal is built of the same cloth. So I ask the devs, what is going on here? I've never been a conspiracy theorist, nor am I now. But something is definitely wrong when the above results are possible. We want primal wars. It's that simple. Others want indi wars, and some still cling to rounds. Please, explain how this can happen, devs and then give us a season that reflects our wishes. I can't believe the money spent, by us, isn't fulfilling yours.
